The Triadic Heart of Siva (Kaula Tantricism of Abhinavagupta In The Non-Dual Shaivism of Kashmir)
The Triadic Heart of Siva (Kaula Tantricism of Abhinavagupta In The Non-Dual Shaivism of Kashmir)
Description

Back of the Book

This books explores one of the most explicit and sophisticated theoretical formulations of Tantric yoga. It explains Abhinavagupta’s teaching about the nature of ultimate reality about the methods for experiencing this ultimate reality and about the nature of the state of realization a condition of embedded enlightenment. The author uncovers the conceptual matriz surrounding the practices of the kaula linerge of Kashmir Shaivism.

The primary textual basis for the book is provided by Abhinavagupta’s Parastrisika laghuvrtti a short meditation manual that centers on the symbolism of the heart mantra Sauh.

Muller Ortega’s approach is good clear intelligent and perceptive. The translation of the Parastrisika laghuvrtti given in the appendix being the first English translation of this short but important text is a very useful contribution to the study of Kashmir Shaivism and so are the long and numerous quotations in the text of other works as yet untranslated into English of Abhinavagupta’s Andre Padoux, center National de Ia Recherche Scientifique Paris.

Paul Eduardo Muller-Ortega is assistant professor of Religious studies at Michigan state University.

The best and fastest service worldwide - I am in Australia and I put in a big order of books (14 items) on a Wednesday; it was sent on Friday and arrived at my doorstep early on Monday morning - amazing! All very securely packed in a very strong cardboard box. I have bought several times from Exotic India and the service is always exceptionally good. THANK YOU and NAMASTE!

Artwork received today. Very pleased both with the product quality and speed of delivery. Many thanks for your help.
Carl, UK.
I wanted to let you know how happy we are with our framed pieces of Shree Durga and Shree Kali. Thank you and thank your framers for us. By the way, this month we offered a Puja and Yagna to the Ardhanarishwara murti we purchased from you last November. The Brahmin priest, Shree Vivek Godbol, who was visiting LA preformed the rites. He really loved our murti and thought it very paka. I am so happy to have found your site , it is very paka and trustworthy. Plus such great packing and quick shipping. Thanks for your service Vipin, it is a pleasure.
Gina, USA
